they rallied around romney was right after the debate in denver. they would prefer romney to win, but there's not a lot of depth to the emotion. in terms of this week, i think it's the most obvious thing in the world. a challenger in a presidential election who has basically suffered a news blackout for the last week of campaigning. mitt romney has no air time. >> because he has no job. >> whether he had -- >> he doesn't have a job. i think people noticed. >> he has no role to play in this. that's not his fault, but it's just the case. he's not relevant to what is going on, which means no one is covering him. for five solid days it's been all obama on the air and all storm and no romney whatsoever. it's sucked the oxygen right out of his room. >> it's the first time when he said i'm unemployed like you guys to real unemployed people that it was true. at a rally in green bay, wisconsin, this morning the president spoke movingly about the aftermath of sandy and its destruction on the east coast. let's take a look at the president today in wisconsin. >> we've also been inspired these past few
tomorrow. >>> and developing right now, governor romney is about to hold a campaign event in virginia. we're going to check in with our reporters covering both the romney campaign and president obama. get you the latest information. what's happening now. >>> plus, the viral video of the little girl who is sick of the campaign. >> i'm tired -- i'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? oh. it will be over soon. >> it went viral late last night. you will not believe how many people have gone on to click to see this kid. it's pretty awesome. it's just one of the things we thought you should know. >>> first, nate silver of "the new york times," blog forecast, november 6th, president obama has a 79% chance of winning re-election. the president will win 300 electoral college votes. governor romney will secure 238. ? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

. >> stephanie: right. >> you have to see the photo shop picture, because the sign says mitt romney they add several letters. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: they are not even good at photo shop. >> no. >> what is left if you can't fake it well? [ laughter ] >> we knew this was likely to be the most expensive election season ever. the numbers ares and on the initialling. the total price tag $6 billion. the presidential election alone accounts for at least $2.6 billion which would be a little bit less than 2008 a total of $2.8 billion spent four years ago, but then talk a about house and senate candidates $1.2 billion, house spending up senate spending down a little bit, and then $970 million by outside groups like super pacs and non-profits. it's all estimated math but that's where the estimate is right now, and what is important to keep in mind is the hundreds of millions of dollars we don't know about because there are groups like cross road's and the chamber of commerce which said they are doing issue advocacy work and don't have to report how much they are spend
, right? "a romney/ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need, period." period? vice president joe biden was campaigning also in the sunshine state today. president obama returns to the campaign trail tomorrow. he plans to barnstorm seven battleground states over the next several days. but today we did not see politics in action. what we saw was government in action. people with authority to make decisions. chris christie is not the first person, i think, that you would think of when you come to the, you know, arena of bipartisan cooperation. he is a mitt romney supporter and a fierce opponent of many democratic issues. for whatever reason, we saw a different chris christie with president obama today. this is what cooperation looks like. when the american people need government to work, these two elected officials became leaders and are in lockstep with each other. about time, isn't it? things are getting done. so many politicians run for office saying that they are going to reach across the aisle when they get to washington, and they're going t
. but despite objections from women's rights groups romney didn't pull this campaign ad. >> i hope you will join me in supporting richard murdoch. this, of course, after freshman house republican joe walsh of illinois insisted there is no such thing as an abortion to protect a woman's life or health because of "advances in science and technology.". and representative todd akin's infamous remark about women's bodies shutting down to prevent pregnancy in cases of so-called "legitimate rape." >> so doctor, are these extreme remarks by republicans distancing themselves from these remarks, are they what are keeping abortion front and center? >> they are actions. they remind women of people trying to redefine rain rape. the words are bad enough. the actions are worse. >> i disagree, bonnie. i think it's to the less advantaged to keep this conversation going. most of them are concerned about the state of the economy and jobs and that's what they are going to the whole thinking about. >> what we know is abortion is the leading topic for women. 39% to 19% to the economy. with the electorate being 56% wom
legislature. so poor women and young women have already had many of their rights taken away. but romney is doing something that has not had a lot of publicity which he has retained the human life amendment which would go around even the supreme court and pass a constitutional amendment saying that the fertilized egg is a person. all right. this is like nationalizing women's bodies. it's insane. and it's the reason that the ultra right has been focusing on state legislators in recent time, they discovered that bombing abortion clinics and murdering doctors was not making them popular. but by focusing on legislatures, they are preparing for a human life amendment which romney supports and then i don't know what to say that he has no such plans, he's really telling two big lies. i've been out there now for a long time and he's telling women two big lies. one, that every one of their children will have a debt of $58,000 from the national debt without telling them that that debt would be bigger if easy elected because he's spending so much more militarily and not taxing rich folks. >> absolu
. this goes right into the romney story we have for you. with the president surveying the storm damage yesterday, mitt romney softened his attacks, not mentioning the president's name even once during three florida rallies. instead the former massachusetts governor emphasized the need for unity amid the national emergency. >> we come together in times like this, and we want to make sure that they have a speedy and quick recovery from their financial and in many cases personal loss. now, people coming together is what's also going to happen, i believe, on november 7th. >> so, i mean, i actually -- i don't know how much it would hurt to go further and say that the president's doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it, and you actually maybe even step aside. i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by going out there and awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right, katty. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which was to sort of lay low, let the pre
campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it.
to be extremely close. i still give the technologically mitt romney. >> sean: all right, governor. i hope we don't have to stay up all night watching ohio -- i love ohio. many friends in cincinnati, dayton and up north. >> right here. of course you are one of them. >> sean: make it an early night for us. >> i'll do my best. >> sean: the white house was quick to release from the bin laden raid and hurricane sandy. where is the photo where four americans died in benghazi. we have breaking news on when the administration received warnings about terrorist flets benghazi that they ig north. then tomorrow night a very special and exclusive interview with one and only clint east wood. he joins me to discuss governor mitt romney. benghazi cover-up and why this will be most important election of our time. that is tomorrow night. clint eastwood plus we are launching a brand-new feature to enhance the hannity viewing experience. details in just 30 seconds. just no fun to drive. now, here's one that will make you feel alive. meet the five-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max says ha. c-max says wheeee. which
to move in the right direction for governor romney and his mislead skyrocketing in crucial battleground states. we begin with the commonwealth of virginia where mitt romney is leading the president by a whopping 21 points with independents. in florida he is outpacing there by 5 percentage points and in battle state of ohio, independent voted stronger, 49% and obama is trailing 43. so will the independent vote hold the keys to the white house. here to tell us is scott rasmussen. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> sean: let's go to first of all, 52-47 the battleground poll or your poll which today is two or three for romney. >> president has been around 47% ever since the first debate. president is trailing consistently among ins. different polls assign independents different ways but we see the independent voters leaning in romney's direction. >> sean: you and gallup, i watch you guys the most. we have battleground which i think is a credible poll. they have him up by five. it stayed that way for a while. do you see it going into election day? >> yes. the race changed after the if y
and they normally do. >> andrea: who leads with senior citizens? mitt romney leads. >> bob: right. >> andrea: independent and women. 3-point turnout advantage this time around swayed ten points to -- >> bob: you are taking something on election day when they did the count and doing seven things out. >> andrea: same exact date. 'canes is a political roundup, can we get to eric? >> eric: obama campaign, my opinion is in shambles. look what david axelrod had to do this morning. >> i will come on morning jo and shave off my mustache for 440 year if we lose any of the three states. with we lose michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania you shave it off? >> on the show? >> yes. >> eric: just to point out, those states narrowed dramatically. some were double digit leads for obama. now within 3 to 4% for obama. what states just come through. i beg you. >> dana: it's amazing thing to think somebody had a mustache for 40 years. that is a long time. his wife might not have met him. >> greg: you know what is thereunder? >> dana: i don't want to know. >> greg: tattoo. >> andrea: also had mustache for a long time
is the detroit news of romney. romney 's right to say -- they criticized his policies and supported obama's policies. on the issue of the auto bailout, they supported obama. >> okay. so once again, there's truth in both ads. >> yeah. it's complicated. >> it is . i guess in many of these ads, they are stretching the truth or leaving out key facts. they are not necessarily out right lies. >> right. that's the big thing thing. you are not getting the full context. >> okay. let's go to another ad. this is going to be pro romney. this one is getting a lot of play. a woman says she went on the internet to find out what romney's views were. >> those ads say mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraceptions seemed extreme. i looked into it. turns out romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest or to save a mother's life. >> she goes on to say that besides for her it's really all about the economy. talk to me about this. is there truth in here? >> this ad is broadly speaking true. no politician is proposing to ban contraception.
at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. . >>> can you believe it? the skins mid-way through the season with a 3-5 record placing them last in the nfc east. they need a win against the panner ands -- panthers. scott smith is here to explain. scott? >> fashion is a part of today's game. this sunday, the skins go retro. the team will wear the 1937 throwbacks. back then, they wore the leather helmets, which would be a bad idea and a leather print has been add tote helmet this weekend. 1937 was the rocky year for one swinging sammy bach and they get set to honor 10 former players on the team's 80th anniversary at halftime. in addition to welcome back a handful of burgundy and gold alumni. the throwbacks are one aspect of what will be a fun weekend for the redskins franchise. alexander breaks down the new, or shall i say old look. >> there -- . >> th
. that was the main reason and here's what he said about mitt romney. all right. sorry, we don't have that. what he said if the 1994 or 200 p 3-version of mitt romney were voting for president, i may have voted for him. what's your response to that? it's got to be a big blow -- as being a business man to say that. >> yeah, i don't think many of us thought that he was going to be endorsing a republican anytime soon. we can't even get a decent sized coke to drink in new york city anymore. i don't think his sort of sense of philosophy really is republican much at all. >> one final question i want to squeeze this in as i told our viewers i would. can mitt romney win this without winning ohio? >> i think he's going to win ohio and i don't know if i can tell you the absolute answer about the electoral math. i have been saying we need to be more competitive in the west coast and new england because we're not competitive there. it makes the map much more difficult for us. i think we're going to win ohio. been there three times and going back on sunday. what i sense is a lot of momentum left over from 2010.

to put america back on the right foot by elect mitt romney as president of the united states. >> greta: it comes down to the great state of wisconsin. that where paul ryan rallying his hometown supporters. chairman previs joins us, are you tired? >> this is rendezvous with destiny. this is time for choosing. this is what it is coming down to. are you tired? people ask me that and did trick-or-treat weigh the kids tonight. this is what we're here for to do this job, to do this mission. when i see out on the campaign trail that volunteers are based the people that are really working hard. they are so charged up. they are charged up to do what they can to save this country and they are hungry. you can feel that. >> greta: polls say they are tied, 46-46. that means it's 92, who are the other 8%? >> we're looking for them. if you look at early vote and absentee ballot vote. we are overperforming by far. the democrats are underperforming in ways you don't hear them talking about. they are about 70% below performance in florida today. they are not where they need to be in wisconsin or ohio. t
. it was 2.8 points. take 7 off that, this is a big romney win. that's not what we're seeing right now. we're seeing a state where romney has a very, very slim lead. what's going on? i think there are two interesting things to focus on. one is the panhandle part of the state. this is where there are a lot of lower-income, noneducated white voters. refer back to the 2008 election, i think we have a graphic that shows it, obama did much better in '08 than kerry in '04. the blue indicates these are areas where obama improved on kerry's performance. of course he improved everywhere except there's this swath from oklahoma up through west virginia, plus deep south areas. if you can see there, the panhandle of florida is one of them. there was a marked drop-off for barack obama from john kerry in the panhandle of florida. what this tells us is that the voters, a certain type of voter that nationally has really turned on obama since 2008 had already turned on him before the 2008 election in florida. so there isn't as much room for romney to make progress there. so what romney's counting on is more
me about mitt romney right now. don't ask me about presidential politics. it's a new world after sandy for new jersey and i've got i bunch of people in harm's way who i need to take care of right now. don't bug me with this stuff. >> but you got to wonder if it is going to give president obama a boost in the polls. a new poll shows an overwhelming amount, 78% of voters approve of president obama's response to hurricane sandy and 44% view romney's response favorably. 35% have no opinion so do you think it will give president obama a boost in the polls? >> well, i don't know if it will help him in the polls but i do think for the president good government is good politics right now and unfortunately for governor romney, you know, all he can do from now is stay out of the way. i think that's why you saw in that poll such a large percentage of people who answered don't know to that question. governor romney in the closing days of this campaign has to take a couple days and take a couple days of a breather and the president gets to be president, but, you know, that's kind of the way t

days. we have the most important election of our lifetime. governor romney was right to take time off to honor those who have been affected by sandy, but he's got to continue to seal the deal on his important race for presidency. he did so. we don't need the president to have another bureaucrat to handle business. we need a business expert like mitt romney. unleash american energy, impose sa sanctions for unfair china trading practices. these are important things because the economy is the number one issue. >> you're trying to cram a lot of things in in these last five days. >> chris, let's get to it. we're going to be listening to the president later this hour. his campaign describing the speech as a closing argument to the voters. what tone does he need to strike? chris, does he really need to keep it respectful or hit back against mitt romney? >> you know, i don't think he necessarily needs to hit back. i personally think, no surprise, that it was a mistake for governor romney to come out as harsh as he did. when there's a national crisis, something as significant and so many peopl
